Is multiwiicopterpilot.com no longer? Just redirects to the main site. How are you guys getting the intro logos on your videos?

The url "http://www.multiwiicopter.com/" works fine for me. I would suggest its a ISP network issue at your end....

No. I mean multiwiicopterpilot.com. It's watermarked in all these Scarab videos where people supposedly submit their videos.

This link, all the videos have them watermarked with it.

Well after seeing stupid people with equipment like S800 and crashing in a full Stadium, others flying above houses and buildings, highways, airports, using frequencies that are banned...

Is difficult to be on either side.

The watermarks in the videos are actually "multicopterpilot.com". If you see a specific video that shows otherwise let me know.

They are kind of ok out of the box but to completely get rid of vibrations(often the prop adapters vibrate sideways while changing RPMs)I found that the blades and the hubs need balance...problem is they are not as consistent as the GWS tripple blades or other APC props I've tried. I know the hub reaming has an impact but I'm using the the stepped reamer from multiwiicopter.com (vs the conical ones that I have) and the holes are coming slightly bigger than the inserts I guess causing part of the inconsistency in balancing. Intrested to hear your opinions.
Two-bladed props have always been more difficult to balance. However, on props that need to be reamed out, I use my tapered reamer and gently enlarge the hole off center towards the heavy side. I've found that this helps a lot in getting some of the stubborn 2-bladed props balanced without gobs of tape.

If anyone else has some tips on this please share!

My bad, that's what I originally meant. But it still redirects to www.multiwiicopter.com

Did that site used to be a video sharing site for Scarabs owners but now discontinued?

Not sure what you mean, but all my 2 bladed airplane props have been a cinch to balance with just tape. And not gobs of them either. I'm nervous about having to balance the triples.

The different URLs ie, CarbonBird.com, MultiWiiCopter.com and MultiCopterPilot.com have always redirected to the main site MultiWiiCotper.com.

Triple props are way easier get a perfect balance than two-bladed props. If a two-bladed prop sits on a balance in a horizontal position, and returns to that position then it's not balanced. A prop that is unbalanced in this way is much harder to balance because there's not a lot surface area to remove and add weight.

You need to be a SPONSORED pilot for Scarab to get one of those spiffy logos

I should know, I want one

Agree 100%, the 120 deg distribution around the hub eliminates the need to balance the hub where as this is necessary for 2 bladed props. Specifically the DJI props are more problematic because they have to be reamed. I too was using a tapered reamer with a slow electric screw driver and a drill press but found extreme variations in hub balance, thought the stepped one would produce better results. The confusing part is that there is no consistency in prop balance between props of same rotation like there is with the GWSs and others....I thought they use the same mold and therefore would tend to be out of balance in the same manner...was wondering if this was due to reaming or if you guys had the same observation. Anyway they are definitely one of the best if not the best(due to price) props for the carbonbirds 775 if you're not looking for high speed flight so I'm really interested in getting them perfect.

To get those cool intro logos on your videos, you have to be a member of a secret society of elite copter pilots. I hear the initiation rituals are the stuff of legends; Cloaks, candles, masks, Latin, the works.

You also must be able to fly FPV through goal posts at blazing speeds, around trees in parks, through paintball combat zones, over squirrels, through the forests and trees, over water, in formation with other aircraft, and you must have nerves of steel. It also helps if you can fly two multicopters simultaneously.

There are also rumors of a secret beetle tattoo in a place that is unmentionable.

By summer time I'll have videos that'll make Stephen Spielberg wet his panties. And I'll start my own Canadian chapter! lol.

The Carbonbird Motors that comes with the Vampire, are they the new NMB bearing ones?

Also, is anyone in this thread an official representative of Multiwiicopter?

I'd like to make this purchase today. Can't handle this itch anymore.

Hey crazyj, noticed you mounted your CarbonBirds on top and not under. Is there a reason for that? Are those the stock CarbonBirds that comes with it?
